Portimao 990SD

Postby PhilJax » Tue Oct 24, 2017 3:48 pm

Had another fabulous trip to Portimao with No Limits. 13th - 15th October
Lot's of sunshine, beer and bikes :D There was another Duke out there, Orange 1290 with lots of stickers on the headlight. Looked to be having a lot of fun.

Thought I'd share this, saw me on someone else's video. So it quickly became my video :lol:

Right at the very back at first, 6 or 7 bikes back. There's a black Duke on the prowl...

That track does look like fun. But, jeebus! Listening to that guy downshift is really painful, to my ears anyway.
If this guy’s a friend you might want to tell him about throttle blipping.

It's an awesome rollercoaster Redtale. My favourite European track, so much so we'll be back there again next year :wink:

Agreed, it's painful listening.. Unfortunately I don't know the guy, he'd be ribbed mercilessly if he was a friend for down changing like that :D

Amazing track,

I was on the first TD event run by a British company back in 09 (I think). Must go back some time.
